Added another triple to the stable!

Well, despite being in Finland for another 4 months I managed to buy a 2011 Tiger 800XC ABS. I was planning on buying a new one when I got back given used ones pop up very rarely and tend to be only $1k under retail (and even those ones sell quickly). Well, one popped up on CL being sold by a reputable local used dealer. Only 4k miles, mint condition, and some useful farkles already installed. Still has some factory warranty, too! Saving me a bit over $4k all together. I'm quite happy about that! It'll be a nice compliment to my 09 Speed Triple.

Here's some crappy pictures the dealer gave me.

My wife took the afternoon off work, and the dealer came by with the bike, gave it a quick spin around the block to show her it worked, and then they did all the paperwork. I really appreciate them making the extra effort to deliver the bike at no charge with no deposit in advance even with me across the Atlantic!

Here it is in the garage next to my 09' Speedy. These next four months are going to go by VERY slow

Here's the crappy picture my wife took.

I love that white XC. Without a doubt the fastest and nicest color. Good choice.
